Drinks were good. Nice pool. Good staff. I think it was a well done location and staff was pretty friendly.

We live in Panajachel on the lake and go to Club Ven Aca for lunch. A few years ago, this was a hotel and restaurant, but now the villas are private homes. Great view of the lake from the tables and bar. You can get wine, beer, liquados, or specialty coffees. We have eaten several times here, and the burger... More

Three of us hiked to Jaibolito from our nearby VRBO and enjoyed a beautiful view of the pool and lake while dining. The manager (owner?) was attentive and gracious. The food varied - fish tacos were great, but the burger and chicken were nothing special. Not many options in this area, so worth a try.

If you like paying separately for WIFI (10 Q), using the pool (50Q), using the hottub (forgot) this is the place for you. There are places a million times nicer (and cheaper) to hang out at on the lake than this decadent place

Gets the job done for those seeking a day drink/lounge. However, the pool costs 50q to use and isn't all that appealing. Drinks are expensive compared to other places around the lake, but tasty. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

Really cool spot. Atmosphere was super laid back/go at your own pace. The owner and his staff were very friendly & professional. The owner speaks English & helped us translate as our Spanish is very minimal. The food was delightful, from the presentation to overall taste. After our 2 course lunch & cerveza's we lounged around the pool for an... More

Ven Aca has the best mojitos!!!! In general, their food and drinks are a little pricey for my taste, but it is nice to go once in awhile. The view from the pool is amazing, but the pool is always freezing and you have to pay an arm and a leg to use the jacuzzi. Food and drinks relish, great... More

Definitely a place to be for a day to spend lying by the beautiful pool, with jacuzzi and a spectacular view of the lake. The restaurant is pricey, but definitely worth it (it is a restaurant with a pool - not a pool with a restaurant). The service was really great - although not much English - so come prepared...

We were staying at La Iguana Perdida in Santa Cruz (which is also fantastic). We spent our last day at Lake Atitlan at Club Ven Aca (which is just one bay, 5min boat around, or 30min walk). Definitely worth a stop on your way to/from Pana/San Pedro/Marcos/Cruz. Decent prices. Yummy food. Delicious smoothies etc. A hot tub and an infinity... More
